If you’re considering a vegan diet for you and your family and you’re wondering how to make it work, you may find this parent-to-parent advice helpful for understanding how I managed a healthy vegan pregnancy and how I’ve raised my son vegan since birth.

  • Is a vegan diet suitable during pregnancy?
  • Can you breastfeed on a vegan diet?
  • Is breastmilk vegan?
  • Is a vegan diet suitable for children?

It’s reassuring to know that NHS guidelines support the fact that a well-planned, well-balanced vegan diet is suitable for people of all ages, including pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and children.
